I'm Anthony, the developer of Printoid.

With the highest support of all the informations returned by OctoPrint, Printoid is reliable, stable and functional as possible with the latest versions of this amazing software :
Smart connection (LAN over WiFi, WAN over WiFi or 3G/4G)
Full 3D printer controls
Full printing management

Custom GCODE commands to extend the control of your 3D printer
Custom SSH commands to extend the functionalities of the app
Custom cURL commands
Up to 10 heater heads, heater bed and up to 2 fans support
2D visualiser for GCODE files
3D visualiser for GCODE & STL files
Real time 2D simulator during the printing job
PSU control plugin integration
And so much more!
At this time, Printoid takes me a lot of and resources: I'm doing all my best to develop the best application ever for your 3D printers. But it has a cost: I need to invest a lot of time and money to be sure Printoid is still compatible with all the configuration possible (printing 24/7 to test continuously the application). This is a very hard work, that's why I need your help if you love Printoid!
But the main goal of this Patreon campaign is the development of the iOS version. Since there are currently no great apps for the iPhone users yet, I really need to develop the iOS version of Printoid for you guys. But unfortunately, I'm just an Android developer for the moment. I need time & training to learn the basics of iOS development - or to finance the whole development with the help of an iOS developer.
